Geosystems HDS Cyclone — software modules provide point
cloud users with the widest set of work process options for 3D
laser scanning projects in engineering, surveying,
construction and related applications.
Unique, Efficient Foundation
inherent completeness of 3D point clouds represents one of
their major advantages over other sources of geometric
information. Cyclone’s unique Object Database
Client/Server software architecture provides the highest
performance environment for laser scanning projects.
Cyclone software makes it easy for users to manage data
efficiently in databases. Users can work concurrently on
databases, thereby reducing the need to copy and/or transmit
large point cloud project files.
Cyclone 5.3 Modules for Flexible
Cyclone 5.3 is comprised of
individual software modules for different needs and for
flexible product customization.
Cyclone-SCAN is the software
interface for operating the HDS2500, HDS3000, and HDS4500
scanners. User-specified scan area and density, data
filtering, scan scripting, and automatic recognition and
extraction of both planar and spherical Leica Geosystems HDS
targets – all contribute to this easy-to-use, intelligent data
Cyclone-REGISTER provides the
complete set of tools for aligning point clouds captured from
different scanning positions, quickly and accurately.
Cyclone-REGISTER supports the use of Leica Geosystems
HDS targets to geo-reference scan data, as well as the ability
to align overlapping areas of point clouds – without the use
of targets. This results in optimum registration, and provides
significant time- and cost-savings by reducing the need to
place and extract targets.
versatile, powerful module enables professionals to use point
clouds directly, to process them into objects for robust
export into CAD (and other applications), and to allow robust
import of data from CAD (and other applications).
Cyclone-MODEL 5.3 has the industry’s largest, most
complete and automated set of tools for accurately modeling 3D
point clouds as CAD geometry or as meshes for engineering,
surveying, construction, architectural and related
Cyclone-SURVEY lets surveyors quickly
extract relevant feature and coordinate information from the
point cloud data via the Cyclone Virtual Surveyor™
function. Powerful tools support complex topographic models,
with intelligent mesh decimation that minimizes file size
while retaining accurate geometry. Cyclone-SURVEY is a
subset of the Cyclone-MODEL product and is an ideal
module for surveyors.
Cyclone-VIEWER is a view-only version
of the Cyclone software. This product, free of charge, enables
visualization of Cyclone data on a desktop or portable
PC, without a full featured Cyclone license. Share your
Cyclone databases with non-Cyclone-MODEL users;
the Cyclone-VIEWER provides full viewing capabilities
to allow users to rotate, zoom and navigate through
Cyclone data, including point clouds and 3D models.
Cyclone-SERVER enables individual
members of workgroups to simultaneously access 3D point cloud
data sets and/or models. This provides a powerful environment
for collaborative design on large, complex projects, and can
significantly reduce project execution time.
Cyclone-SERVER supports the simultaneous connection of
one through ten ‘client’ users to the same data server in a
network environment. These clients can be licensees of
Cyclone-REGISTER, MODEL, SURVEY, VIEWER, or
Cyclone CloudWorx for AutoCAD and for
